EDUCATIONAL AIMS OF PROGRAMME

The programme is designed to provide students with training in History and Anthropology, two disciplines which, while discrete, are complementary and mutually enriching. The programme allows students to delve into each discipline’s unique body of knowledge, subject matters, and research skills. Social Anthropology is concerned with key debates regarding culture and society, examined by comparative methods and ethnography, which entails engagement and participation in the field. This promotes an understanding of diversity across a range of cross-cultural fields, including kinship, economy, ecology, religion, gender, art, music and morality. History is concerned with contested interpretations of the past and the limited nature of historical knowledge across diverse time periods and geographical regions. This encourages an engagement with the general methodological and theoretical approaches of historians from social, cultural, political, economic, and gender perspectives.

The strength and uniqueness of the joint programme lies in the promotion of mutually-enforcing skills, which transcend discipline-specific paradigms. Both History and Anthropology enable students to think critically outside the confines of their own culture, to cultivate the capacity to reflect upon social change and the interaction of cultures across time and space, and to situate localised experiences within wider global processes and international contexts. Through the two disciplines, students acquire knowledge and develop skills that enable them to evaluate a wide range of sources, including oral, visual, and written. Moreover, they develop the ability to research, gather, sift and deploy relevant information and concepts, while being able to understand, discriminate between, and evaluate critically conflicting theoretical and interpretative positions. The programme is also designed to equip students with a range of skills which promote self-motivated, independent learning. In addition to written outputs, emphasis is placed on creative tasks including digital and print media, and research projects in collaboration with academic and non-academic collectives and institutions. The diverse and attractive skills developed aid students in the pursuit of employment in a vast array of sectors within and outside the humanities.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Learning Outcomes: Cognitive Skills

On the completion of this course successful students will be able to:

exercise sound, reasoned judgment;

Teaching/Learning Methods and Strategies

Seminars and tutorials offer a variety of tutor-led and student-led learning opportunities as well as a more sustained opportunity to debate and evaluate a breadth of knowledge gained independently from directed reading and from the sharing of resources and information.

Through class discussions, sometimes assigned to pairs or sub-groups, students develop a comparative understanding of different approaches to material and the ability to formulate their own arguments and responses.

Through supervision of dissertations and research essays students are encouraged to identify a research topic; collate relevant data and write an independent analysis of it

Student-centred learning situations encourage the ability to present and summarise knowledge to peers in a coherent, structured form, and to further enhance organisational and inter-personal skills.

Writing skills tutorials and dissertation workshops develop a student’s ability to structure and write a coherent and lucid essay and dissertation. Research skills in online bibliographical searches and the use of archives and libraries are developed through preparatory workshops for the dissertation. Students also have the opportunity to attend classes in database management.

Group projects are used to encourage students to collaborate with peers, negotiate the demands of teamwork and develop their understanding of a topic.

Methods of Assessment

Examinations and essays require that students demonstrate coverage of material, appropriate methods of analysis, the ability to discriminate between arguments, and the ability to form an independent argument.

Written exams help students gain a knowledge of a topic that can be readily and directly applied to a set problem or question, and also test their ability to select relevant information and to write clearly and concisely within a set time.

Essays test their ability to collect, order and shape information, and to recognise ways in which to present and prioritise material.

Dissertations test students’ ability to conceive of an independent research project; collate relevant data and synthesise it in a coherent and lucid analysis.

Coursework is required to be submitted in a specified form and to fixed deadlines, thus teaching students to learn to prioritise assignments and objectives and to hone their organisational and time-management skills.

Feedback is provided for each type and instance of assessment and students may seek dedicated feedback sessions with course tutors. The Personal Tutor system facilitates student reflection upon academic performance and assists in developing strategies for improvement.

structure, manage and adapt strategies for self-directed independent research.

Teaching/Learning Methods and Strategies

Seminars and tutorials offer a variety of tutor-led and student-led learning opportunities as well as a more sustained opportunity to debate and evaluate a breadth of knowledge gained independently from directed reading and from the sharing of resources and information.

Through class discussions, sometimes assigned to pairs or sub-groups, students develop a comparative understanding of different approaches to material and the ability to formulate their own arguments and responses.

Through supervision of dissertations and research essays students are encouraged to identify a research topic; collate relevant data and write an independent analysis of it

Student-centred learning situations encourage the ability to present and summarise knowledge to peers in a coherent, structured form, and to further enhance organisational and inter-personal skills.

Writing skills tutorials and dissertation workshops develop a student’s ability to structure and write a coherent and lucid essay and dissertation. Research skills in online bibliographical searches and the use of archives and libraries are developed through preparatory workshops for the dissertation. Students also have the opportunity to attend classes in database management.

Group projects are used to encourage students to collaborate with peers, negotiate the demands of teamwork and develop their understanding of a topic.

Methods of Assessment

Examinations and essays require that students demonstrate coverage of material, appropriate methods of analysis, the ability to discriminate between arguments, and the ability to form an independent argument.

Written exams help students gain a knowledge of a topic that can be readily and directly applied to a set problem or question, and also test their ability to select relevant information and to write clearly and concisely within a set time.

Essays test their ability to collect, order and shape information, and to recognise ways in which to present and prioritise material.
